Fox TV said Monday that the daughter of the late Michael Jackson will make her acting debut this season on the drama series Star.

The 18-year-old Jackson was born to the pop star and then-wife Debbie Rowe.

Star, from Empire creator Lee Daniels, is set in the music industry and features Queen Latifah as a surrogate mom to aspiring young singers.

A date for the episode with Paris Jackson wasn't announced. The show airs 9 p.m. EST Wednesday on Fox.
